Tombigbee State Park - 3/19/2018 12:33:42 PM

Water temps are running in the mid to upper 50’s. As the days are getting longer and the water temps continuing to warm, both bass and crappie are starting to make the transition toward the shallows to spawn. For bass, anglers are throwing crankbaits, jerkbaits, and spinnerbaits for most bites. Other techniques like Texas-rigged soft plastics and shakeyheads are also producing fish. Most anglers are targeting the laydowns and ditches leading to the pockets. It took 6.24 pounds to win a small tournament there this past weekend. The crappie bite is being reported as good. Anglers are catching fish from 4 – 10 ft of water around piers and other forms of cover. Both jigs and minnows are working right now. The bream bite is good as well. Anglers are targeting a lot of the same water that the crappie anglers are. Tightlined redworms has been the best technique. For catfish, a few are being caught around the pier with tightlined redworms or nightcrawlers.
